— According to a person who spoke directly to Vince McMahon this past week, Wade Barrett vs. The Undertaker is currently penciled in as the main event for WrestleMania XXVII. Barring a setback in recovery, it’s now considered a lock that The Undertaker will work the show. As reported earlier this week, the Undertaker will be appearing at WWE‘s Axxess event, which takes place the day before WrestleMania.

— Starting with the Royal Rumble, all future WWE Blu-ray releases will include the DVD version. There will be a price increase of $5.
